Is this the best outdoor gym in Windsor?

Fresh air and an adrenaline boost all year round

Fresh air is always a good idea for boosting our mental health and giving us a healthy change of scenery, but in the autumn and winter months it can feel a though there aren't that many opportunities to entice us into the great outdoors.

Outdoor gyms, cycle paths and jogging trails however are a great option, and the top spas are embracing this proactive use of outdoor space. Amongst them, is the luxurious and industry leading Fairmont Windsor Park, which features an outdoor gym, and a wellness walk to get you there.

A luxury modern spa

Fairmont Windsor Park opened in 2021 with great anticipation. Not only is the location spectacular (as you might have guessed, it's on the edge of Windsor Great Park), but it's one of the most comprehensive wellness facilities you could ask for.
